HOWEVER, the Bible does in many places, especially throughout proverbs, condemn drunkards and people who abuse alcohol. It seems fairly clear that although alcohol by itself is not inherently evil, the Bible does not condone the abuse or misuse of alcohol.
Taking intoxicating drugs is a sin and is forbidden in many religions. I believe it is for a good reason, as my father went through seven circles of hell to begin his life without alcohol. I suggest you also read the information at abbeycarefoundation.com/alcohol/is-drinking-wine-every-night-bad-for-you/ so you understand the difference between taking alcohol sometimes and alcoholism.
